The trip to Melk Abby was great. We learned a lot about the early church coming north from Italy. The daytime cruising was fantastic. Wine tasting and learning about the local farms was excellent.

The castle hike was very a great outing. The history is very interesting.

Budapest, Hungary

One if not the favorite city to explore. The market with the huge variety of vendors was a real taste of the local flavor.
